Demonstrators who denied the Covid-19, or at least opposed to safeguarding their health and that of others by getting vaccinated, came enraged this Monday to what they thought was the headquarters of the BBC to cry out against the chain, which in its exercise of public service Row for immunity to leave the pandemic behind.

These people, now turned on by the gradual implementation of the so-called ‘certificate’ or ‘Covid passport’, which prevents access to restoration, cultural or sports spaces to those who do not prove to be vaccinated or have tested negative in a recent test, blame the BBC of lying to the public about the vaccine.

The problem for them, as recounted The Guardian, is that they made a mistake that can be considered a big one. That mistake has served to give greater visibility to their protest, but on the side of derision, since they were in the wrong place: the BBC abandoned that building about a decade ago.


The chain, which moved in 2013, maintains three studios there for commercial purposes that it largely rents out, mainly to ITV, which broadcasts its morning shows from there. There are also apartments and a private club. The managers, journalists and technicians and, what most interested the protesters, the studies and news writing are located 8 kilometers away, in the recognizable Broadcasting House.

One of the assembled anti-vaccine looked familiar. It was about Piers Corbyn, brother of the former Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who could be heard saying “we have to get hold of these bastards.” Fellow protesters shouted “shame!” and they called the media “viruses”. The police prevented them from accessing the place where they believed to be.
